Freshman Orientation? That’s cool.

There are not many high schools where the 9th grade students can spend an entire day learning about their new school.  Here at HWRHS, the tradition is that a trained group of upperclassmen will work with the 9th grade students to help them get acclimated, learn about the culture, answer questions and to gather plenty of information related to their new venture.

I am excited to welcome a new group of ninth grade students to the HS as we will be starting our first year together and learning about the HS together!

Here is the schedule for the day:

All ninth grade students arrive at HWRHS no later than 7:40 AM

7:40 – 7:55 AM – Introductory Meeting in the Auditorium

8:00 – 8:20 AM – Homeroom meetings

8:24 – 10:00 AM – Meet teachers by period

10:04 – 11:36 AM – Orientation workshops

11:36 – 12:02 PM – LUNCH

12:06 – 1:06 PM – Orientation workshops
